Published: Saturday, 17 September 2011 23:34
It's a little after 11:30 est and there are still a number of games going on; but here's the run down of what you need to know in FBS football from week 3...
Oklahoma, Alabama and LSU have proved that they belong up top. Boise State, Stanford, Wisky, Oklahoma State and South Carolina are all undefeated (at the moment) and have looked impressive.
No body is calling A&M, Nebraska, Arkansas or Va Tech asking to play them either.
Every high school athlete in the country wants to play for Will Muschamp.
South Florida and FIU are both 3-0. Let that soak in...and both are playing very, very well.
Every win is important; but these seem worthy of particular mention:
Larry Porter and Memphis got their first win of the season (a 27-6 win over Austin Peay).
Kirk Ferentz saw his Iowa team put together 21 points in the 4th quarter for an important comeback win over Pitt at home 31-27.
James Franklin has Vandy 3-0 after winning 30-7 at home against Ole Miss (now 1-2).
Mark Richt and Georgia got their first win of the season 59-0 over Coastal Carolina.
Kevin Wilson and Indiana got their first win of the year 38-21 over South Carolina State.
Jerry Kill's guys at Minnesota picked up their first win 29-23 over Miami (OH).

Mark Hudspeth has Louisiana Lafayette 2-1 after winning 38-21 over Nicholls State.
Lane Kiffin has USC 3-0 after beating Syracuse 38-17...and yes, they kicked extra points after all 5 touchdowns.
Auburn lost to Clemson 38-24 snapping a 17 game winning streak...Clemson is 3-0.
Notre Dame picked up their first win of the season, 31-13 over Michigan State.
Down 34-7 late in the 3rd quarter, Houston scored 28 unanswered to stay undefeated in beating Louisiana Tech 35-34.
